    Detailed analysis of chick optic fissure closure reveals Netrin-1 as an essential mediator of epithelial fusion

    Holly Hardy et al.
    Chick optic fissure closure is a powerful new model system for epithelial fusion and has revealed Netrin-1 as a conserved and essential mediator of tissue fusion in multiple contexts.

    Necdin shapes serotonergic development and SERT activity modulating breathing in a mouse model for Prader-Willi syndrome

    Valéry Matarazzo et al.
    Inhibition of serotonin transporter activity, by fluoxetine treatment, in early post-natal life induces persistent apnea in wild-type mice but restores normal breathing in Necdin-KO pups that reproduce breathing abnormalities observed in Prader-Willi syndrome.

    Synergistic integration of Netrin and ephrin axon guidance signals by spinal motor neurons

    Sebastian Poliak et al.
    The Netrin-1 and ephrin-B2 proteins act synergistically in the developing nervous system.

    A lectin receptor kinase as a potential sensor for extracellular nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide in Arabidopsis thaliana

    Chenggang Wang et al.
    Genetic and biochemical analyses demonstrate that cell-surface lectin receptors can potentially function as extracellular NAD+-binding receptors and provide direct evidence for extracellular NAD+ being a bona fide endogenous signaling molecule in plants.

    The mammalian lectin galectin-8 induces RANKL expression, osteoclastogenesis, and bone mass reduction in mice

    Yaron Vinik et al.
    The secreted sugar-binding protein galectin-8 causes osteoblasts to secrete factors that promote the differentiation of bone marrow cells into osteoclasts; targeting this protein could therefore potentially help treat diseases associated with excessive bone loss.

    Structural basis for the hijacking of endosomal sorting nexin proteins by Chlamydia trachomatis

    Blessy Paul et al.
    Chlamydia hijacks membrane trafficking proteins of the human host via the cytoplasmic domain of a secreted transmembrane protein.

    Recognition of tumor cells by Dectin-1 orchestrates innate immune cells for anti-tumor responses

    Shiho Chiba et al.
    An immune system pattern recognition receptor potentiates anti-tumor innate immune responses, offering new insight into anti-tumor activity of the innate immune system.

    The stress-responsive kinases MAPKAPK2/MAPKAPK3 activate starvation-induced autophagy through Beclin 1 phosphorylation

    Yongjie Wei et al.
    Nutrient starvation activates autophagy by a novel signaling mechanism that is blocked by one of the major autophagy inhibitors.

    Neuron-wide RNA transport combines with netrin-mediated local translation to spatially regulate the synaptic proteome

    Sangmok Kim, Kelsey C Martin
    The spatial regulation of gene expression within neurons occurs primarily at the level of local translation rather than by stimulus-induced RNA targeting from nucleus to synapse.

    Nerfin-1 represses transcriptional output of Hippo signaling in cell competition

    Pengfei Guo et al.
    The zinc finger protein Nerfin-1 represses the transcriptional output of Hippo signaling in cell competition by binding to the TEA DNA-binding domain of Scalloped.
